  • Epure, Mircea (2012)
    This paper adopts a managerial accounting perspective to propose and empirically illustrate a research design for firm decision making based on performance feedback. In doing so, it operationalizes the theoretical frameworks ...
  • Bonfiglioli, Alessandra; Gancia, Gino (2014)
    We study the equilibrium determinants of firm-level heterogeneity in a model in which firms can choose between different probability distributions when drawing productivity at the entry stage and explore the implications ...
  • Voth, Joachim; Ferguson, Thomas (2008)
    This paper examines the value of connections between German industry and the Nazi movement in early 1933. Drawing on previously unused contemporary sources about management and supervisory board composition and stock ...
  • Niño-Mora, José (2000)
    Most research on single machine scheduling has assumed the linearity of job holding costs, which is arguably not appropriate in some applications. This motivates our study of a model for scheduling $n$ classes of stochastic jobs ...
  • Adams, Renée; Funk, Patricia (2009)
    The representation of women in top corporate officer positions is steadily increasing. However, little is known about the impact this will have. A large literature documents that women are different from men in their choices ...
  • Le Menestrel, Marc; Lemaire, Bertrand (2004)
    We represent interval ordered homothetic preferences with a quantitative homothetic utility function and a multiplicative bias. When preferences are weakly ordered (i.e. when indifference is transitive), such a bias equals ...
  • Le Menestrel, Marc; Lemaire, Bertrand (2004)
    In the homogeneous case of one-dimensional objects, we show that any preference relation that is positive and homothetic can be represented by a quantitative utility function and unique bias. This bias may favor or disfavor ...
  • Graham, Yvette; Thurmair, Gregor; Toral, Antonio; Aleksic, Vera (2014)
  • Aitchison, J.; Greenacre, Michael (2001)
    The singular value decomposition and its interpretation as a linear biplot has proved to be a powerful tool for analysing many forms of multivariate data. Here we adapt biplot methodology to the speciffic case of compositional ...
  • Asan, Zerrin; Greenacre, Michael (2008)
    A biplot, which is the multivariate generalization of the two-variable scatterplot, can be used to visualize the results of many multivariate techniques, especially those that are based on the singular value decomposition. ...
  • Garcia Villar, Jaume; Quintana, Climent (2005)
    This paper examines the associations between obesity, employment status and wages for several European countries. Our results provide weak evidence that obese workers are more likely to be unemployed or tend to be more ...
  • Baten, Jörg; van Zanden, Jan Luiten (2007)
    Endogenous growth theory suggests that human capital formation plays a significant role for the ‘wealth and poverty of nations.’ In contrast to previous studies which denied the role of human capital as a crucial determinant ...
  • Freixas, Xavier; Tsomocos, Dimitrios P. (2004)
    The aim of this paper is to examine the pros and cons of book and fair value accounting from the perspective of the theory of banking. We consider the implications of the two accounting methods in an overlapping generations ...
  • Sáez, María (1996)
    We propose an evolutionary model of a credit market. We show that the economy exhibits credit cycles. The model predicts dynamics which are consistent with some evidence about the Great Depression. Real shocks trigger episodes ...
  • Satyanath, Shanker; Voigtländer, Nico; Voth, Joachim (2013)
    Social capital – a dense network of associations facilitating cooperation within a community – typically leads to positive political and economic outcomes, as demonstrated by a large literature following Putnam. A growing ...
  • Cuadras Morató, Xavier; Raya, Josep M. (2014)
    Do political tensions affect economic relations? In particular, does politics significantly affect consumer choices? Firms are often threatened by consumer boycotts that pretend to modify their business strategies and ...
  • Canova, Fabio (2008)
    A method to estimate DSGE models using the raw data is proposed. The approach links the observables to the model counterparts via a flexible specification which does not require the model-based component to be solely located ...
  • Schlag, Karl (2008)
    Small sample properties are of fundamental interest when only limited data is avail- able. Exact inference is limited by constraints imposed by speci.c nonrandomized tests and of course also by lack of more data. These ...
  • Ventura, Jaume (2002)
    This paper presents a stylized model of international trade and asset price bubbles. Its central insight is that bubbles tend to appear and expand in countries where productivity is low relative to the rest of the world. ...
